Six months into the global pandemic, we continue to be confronted with an ever changing landscape that affects our day to day lives in many ways. As we move into fall with a return to office, return to school and the unknown of a second wave of the virus, it is important that we take time for ourselves and our mental well-being. OAEM is proud to partner with professionals who have volunteered their time to provide you with tips and advice.
